The DOREMI project focuses on three main health aspects related to frailty in older people: unhealthy nutrition, sedentariness and cognitive decline. These aspects are the main items at the basis of the DOREMI environment: a context-aware and smart system able to learn and reason about older people, their intentions, preferences and aims. The system is able to provide feedback and propose solutions to improve their lifestyle. The specialist will be able to select and assign a personalised lifestyle protocol that will be associated to a set of game typologies (cognitive games, social games or exergames). At home, the old person will be able to select the game scenario which best corresponds to personal preferences and habits. Subsequently, the system will follow a monitor-learn loop to understand how the old person evolves according to the compliance of the assigned protocol.
The effectiveness and impacts, on both users and on the healthcare system, is being tested in a set of pilots set up in Italy and UK, involving both elderly users and care providers.

Objective

According to the UCD Institute of Food and Health, 3 are the most notable health promotion and disease prevention programs that target the main causes of morbidity and premature mortality: Malnutrition, Sedentariness, and Cognitive decline, conditions that affect the quality of life of elderly people and drive to disease progression. These 3 features will represent the target areas in the DOREMI project. The project vision is aimed at developing a systemic solution for elderly, able to prolong the functional and cognitive capacity by empowering, stimulating and unobtrusively monitoring the daily activities according to well defined "Active Ageing" lifestyle protocols. The project joins the concept of prevention centered on the elderly, characterized by a unified vision of being elderly today, namely, a promotion of the health by a constructive interaction between mind, body and social engagement. To fulfill these goals, food intake measurements and personalized metabolic control, exergames associated to social interaction stimulation, and cognitive training programs will be proposed to an elderly population enrolled during a pilot study. The project combines multidisciplinary research areas in serious games, social networking, Wireless Sensor Network, activity recognition and contextualization, behavioral pattern analysis. By recording and monitoring information about the use of the adopted lifestyle protocols, it would be possible to track the users performance over long periods, providing a potential alert for signs of malnutrition, physical and cognitive deterioration. The close collaboration between the healthcare representatives and experienced technological partners will drive the ICT development needed to release a set of prototypes to be validated in the pilot study. The effectiveness and impacts, on both users and on the healthcare system, will be proofed in the pilot study set up in Italy and UK, involving both elderly users and care providers.
